    Obd 1.5 wtf?

    So after over a years ownership of my Euro spec Firebird it turns out what I thought was a mileage related 'service engine soon' light actually requires a code reading. Thought it was just like the spanner light on my Picasso

    It's marked up as OBD1 compliant ( 12 port) yet uses the 16 port OBD2 fitting .On the OBD system you can get the codes by shorting A and B terminal . On mine after loads of searching doing that to terminal 5 and 6 is meant to do the same ...except it doesn't It simply clears the code which then resets after about 15 minutes running ( it's time based it appears rather than mileage ).

    Anyway point of this does anyone have a code reader to suit this system around the Portmouth / Hampshire area before I drag it all up to AutoPontiac ( after I of course check they can do it anyway ).

    Not looking for favours totally willingto pay , just want to make sure teh car is right before I sell it .

    I'm not local so can't recommend anyone, but my advice would be steer clear of Robin Gray.
    I'm sure there are plenty of garages that can read it. I know my scanner would but I'm not local.

    I've got the feeling that it may just be telling me the aircon doesn't work, which I already KNOW! LOL

    This is the change over year, so ODB1 protocol on an ODB2 port.
    Robin is scaling back? Good. Never understood why he was the darling of the POC. He never saw any of my Pontiacs, telephone conversations with him were enough to put me off.

    No. If the AC is even monitored is would come from the BCM, whilst your SES light is a function of the PCM.
    You have something that's set a code, i.e. Misfire, emissions etc

    Did sound a bit stalkerish didn't it.
    I've had a few people think I was someone else. Asking why I didn't wave to them as they saw my car go past, they were adamant it was my car, they said they saw the number plate, however around that time I had a cover over my front plate, so they must have been mistaken.

    Driven past your house a few times over the years, seen the cars on the driveway, went past this morning on the way to work to refresh my mind on where abouts in the road it is. I was looking out for the white one, saw the Firebird.

    Many thanks for your time and trouble today Dan . Having heard back from AutoPontiac ( £80+ VAT to scan )and Actron scanners it workd out cheaper in the long run to purchase one of their scanners as it is backwards compatible with the system on my car.

    Cheers
    Kev
